First Look: Check Out Tom Felton in Uniform for Upcoming War Drama “Megan Leavey”
Recently, we caught a first glimpse of the trailer for the upcoming war drama Megan Leavey, starring Tom Felton. Although Tom was unfortunately MIA from that first look at the new film, Felton fans can now rejoice – new promotional images from Megan Leavey have been released by Bleecker Street. Fans can catch a look at Tom as well as stars Kate Mara, Bradley Whitford, Ramon Rodriguez, and rapper Common.
The film, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, is a biographical drama about Marine corporal Megan Leavey (played by Kate Mara) and a combat dog named Rex during their deployment in Iraq.
